. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise in support of yucca mountain which by law is designated as the site for permanent geological repository for our nation's spent nuclear fuel. last year the president's blue ribbon commission on america's nuclear future issued a report but barred from even evaluating the merits of yucca mountain, despite the fact that it has been approved in a bipartisan basis by congress and signed into law by the president -- actually reaffirmed by signing of the law in 2002, the initial law was passed in 1982, and the law was amended in 1987 which in a bipartisan manner passed thue both chambers, signed by -- through both chambers, signed by different presidents, established that yucca mountain would be the repository for our nuclear spent fuel. what the blue ribbon commission did say was any host community should expect incentives. that commitment is no different from nevada when it comes to yucca mountain, and good news. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first deliver
pitted a national law against a 2004 arizona voter registration bill. the case explores the extent of state powers against the controversial backdrop of voting restrictions. arizona's proposition 200 requires state residents to provide either a driver's license, passport, birth certificate or physical proof of citizenship before they can vote. but an existing federal law requires only a sworn statement of citizenship on a voter registration form. supporters say the arizona measure cuts down on voter fraud by keeping noncitizens from voting. but opponents argue the law unfairly tarring hes minorities, immigrants, and the elderly. the case is only the most recent dispute between arizona and the federal government related to immigration issues. over the summer, the supreme court upheld part of a top state law that allowed police to check for immigration papers. other states, including alabama, georgia, kansas and tennessee, have similar laws on the books and a number of other states are also considering comparable measures. the obama administration supports the challenge to the arizon
it personally, and as a matter of policy and law. embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lgbt americans and all americans. to deny the opportunity to any of our daughters and sons, solely on the basis of who they are, and who they love is to deny them the chance to live up to their own god-given potential. >> one of the things that she said in this video that gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights, which is an echo of her famous declaration at the international women's conference in beijing back in '95. where she really stirred the fires in international diplomacy as first lady by declaring women's rights human rights. >> and that was controversial back then. that was seen as a sort of revolutionary statement, the state department was nervous that she said that. they didn't really want that to happen. i think we will be looking back ten, 20 years on the notion that gay rights are human rights and think, well, duh, the same way we think about women's rights now. >> a real generational change certainly in the republican party as we w
the last few years. we know what economic impacts this law is already having as it it -- its still gnashient implement -- nascient implementation has moved forward. we need to make ourselves accountable to the american people for this law and what we now know is in this law. i therefore respectfully urge each and every one of my colleagues to support this amendment. thank you, madam president. i yield back my time. ms. mikulski: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from maryland. ms. mikulski: madam president, i rise to speak on the cruz amendment. as i said, i'm glad senator lee had his chance. as i said, the cruz amendment would prevent the department of health and human services from implementing funding for the discretionary spending aspects of the affordable care act. as the presiding officer knows of the affordable care act so well and played a major part in it when she was a member of the house of representatives, you know that this would be -- have disastrous consequences. its consequence would essentially defund the affordable care act. they call it obamacar
muffins and mimosas so you can question the chooch about the ultrasound law while dining on a corn muffin. and the united versions versus the united states. the end run around the american way of life. i think that one is about bike lanes. but this was the item on the agenda that caught my eye as soon as the cpac schedule was released last month. too many american wars? should we fight anywhere? and can we afford it? now, that is legitimately fascinating. it was ten years ago this week that republicans and conservatives led the charge, and led a lot of democrats to go along with them to invading iraq. because they argued, you know, wmd, smoking gun mushroom cloud, whatever, let's just go to war. but now, ten years later at cpac, conservatives asking each other, asking themselves whether we as a country might be going to war too much. them asking themselves that question is really interesting for our national politics around war and peace. as they become increasingly dislocated from standard republican and partisan axes on those subjects. are we fighting too many american wars? what
duck for two months over the summer was that under the campaign finance laws, he couldn't use money that he'd already raised until after he received the nomination for president in august. i believe that our primary process is way too long. i think our calendar needs to be looked at. i think our debate calendar needs to be shrunk. i think we had way too many debates with candidates slicing and dicing each other, and i think they had to wait too long to get to the convention. i'm calling for a convention in june or july. we're going to set up a commission that's going to make that decision. i'm going to be a part of that. i'm going to chair that commission. ut no more august conventions. scommoip we're taking republican thoughts on those changes that reince priebus was talking about. give us a call. the phone numbers, we'll put up for you. we're doing our lines regionally for republicans just in this first segment of the "washington journal" tosmede a few other stories that are out there -- obama to pick tom perez for labor. that's the headline of the politico story this morning. pre
about guns. the fact is, this country supports the individual rights of law abiding citizens to own guns and we also understand what happens when lunatics like adam lanza and others, take stolen guns and go out and commit awful crimes with them. but telling those people we should give up second amendment rights to stop lunatics from doing it. it wasn't second amendment rights who put the gun in that man's hands. he murdered his mother, stole the gun, murdered the children, violated at least a half dozen laws by the time he got to the schoolhouse door and violated more by murdering the children. this is not going to be solved bypassing more laws. the country has plenty more laws that could be enforced and we probably have to have some new-- go ahead. >> megyn: he talked about the ar-15, one of the rifles and the ammunition, saying that the kind of ammunition used in newtown would have produced very extensive severe and mutilating injuries of the head and face of the small victims. with all due respect to the victims i'm repeating his argument and. >> understood. >> megyn: to talk about th
requiring as a matter of law that north carolina coastal policy be based on historic rates of sea level rise rather than on what north carolina scientists actually preaddict. this means that even though north carolina scientists predict 39 inches of sea level rise within the century, north carolina by its own law is only allowed to prepare for eight. king canute would be so proud. further down, the south carolina department of natural resources wrote a report more than a year ago on the risks climate change poses to the palmetto state, but it was never released to the public. the state newspaper managed to obtain a copy of that study. the report calls for south carolina to prepare for increases in wildlife disease, loss of prime hunting habitat and the invasion of nonnative species, but to republicans, these are more problems which shall not be named. in south dakota, the republican legislature in 2010 even passed a nonbinding resolution calling for teaching in public schools that relies on a number of common and thoroughly debunked climate denier claims. in short, bringing climate denier pr
] >>> laws designed to combat voter fraud are popular with one particular demographic, the one that lost the white house in november. today, those forces are arguing before the supreme court that an arizona voter fraud law is so important its stringent documentation requirements so necessary that we should forget that federal law trumps state law. indeed. to understand, just how popular these laws are with conservatives, watch how the crowd at cpac responded to south carolina governor nikki haley when she mentioned her own state's voter fraud law. >> every election in our state now requires photo i.d. before you vote. >> joining us now is democratic congressman elijah cummings of maryland. welcome, sir. >> it's good to be with you. >> what is your response, sir, to hearing the crowds cheer like that for voter i.d. laws? because that line about voter fraud got a bigger response even than her line trashing the affordable care act. >> first of all, martin, i believe that voting is a right. and it's something that is afforded to all of our citizens and we should not be doing anything to prev

[applause] and on the life question, it's really pretty simple. i went through the toughest election of my life last fall. i had tracking cameras around me from st. patrick's day until november 6th, one to three cameras always focused on me trying to get a second or a minute that they could run against me in an ad. they didn't get a single second that they could run against me, not one second, by the way. [applause] but they're in the business of trying to undermine and weaken us, and i didn't back up on any principle. we debated the issue of life, and i said my opponent, my leftist opponent cannot answer two questions on life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. and at what moment does life begin? the instant of conception. and the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those questions. they know they lose the debate. i stood on life, and i stood on marriage -- [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people that have been backing away from these challenges don't seem to realize that i'm still standing.

. the message for the president is that no one person gets to decide the law. no one person gets to decide your guilt or innocence. my question, my question to the president was about more than just killing americans on american soil. my question was about whether presidential power has limits. [applause] lincoln put it well when he wrote, nearly all men can stand adversity but if you want to test a man, give him power. president obama who seemed once upon a time to respect civil liberties has become the president who signed a law allowing for indefinite detention of an american citizen. indeed a law that allows an american citizen to be sent to guantÁnamo bay without a trial. president obama defends the signing of this bill by stating that he is no intention of detaining an american citizen without a trial. likewise he defended possible target -- targeted drone strikes on americans by indicating he had no intention of doing so. my 13 hour filibuster was a message to the president. good intentions are not enough. [applause] the presidential i will protect to serve and defend the constitution.
the law. actually u.n. charter for any nation state to violate, and another mission, except in self-defense. and pakistan, notwithstanding the entire world opinion is behind the u.s. in this. so far, this means the u.s. government and the government, apparently, yes, there is no backing, but i think there's tacit approval from the government, maybe even the military that the drone attacks must continue. if there's widespread belief that pakistan shares intelligence with the u.s., then it's not violating a country's sovereignty, is it? >> apparently what you say is true, is not violating. but when we look at the operation level, this is going to create a lot of problems, both for pakistan and the united states. there is going to be two kinds of backlashes. number one, people are going to be attacking the pakistan government for not defending them enough, and the pakistani people, they're going to turn more and more anti-american. but this stand by the u.n. at least gives some reason to the pakistani government to do some kind of a protest and suggest to the american government to rea
for the business, and with a roomful of attorneys and law professor. i'm sure you're familiar with the duty of care and loyalty. it's a to read your manual and the responsibility related to being a good board member and the duty of loyalty. the duty to the company above your personal interest and that includes the conflict of interest for non-profit. there's an additional duty of obedience to the mission. and tamyra asked me to mention today my own concept of an additional duty of duty of imagination. ting fits here. which is what i think. so if the sneed business had a board and followed the duty of care and locality. they could follow their responsibility, they could have a good audit and follow every rule and regulation perfectly fine. there's little regulation related to ecosystems, in fact. and they could have no conflict of interest on the board. they can be doing their job perfectly fine. the question, the issue is here, the duty of imagination, which is where do we see this business in the future? where are we taking this organization? what is the greater potential in the future long-term v
a single law-abiding american. because the president believes in our second amendment rights. but he also believes we have to take steps to reduce gun violence. steps like closing loopholes in our background check system. that's something that 91% of the american people support. 91%. republicans, democrats, independents. rural americans, sportsmen and women. urban americans. i mean this is something that even the nra, even wayne lapierre used to support. so -- i think this is a common-sense measure that we hope and the president hopes, is moved forward on it. there's progress on in congress and that he will eventually get to sign into law. >> before i let you go, jay, there's a report on "reuters" that chuck hagel at the pentagon is going to be announcing a new missile defense to be installed in alaska presumably to protect against anything coming from north korea. can you tell us about that? well i want to point you to the announcements coming out of the defense department, so i don't have a lot on that for you. we have obviously very mindful of the north korean threat as well as threats
